PureScience: From being extinct in less than 100 yrs of discovery to evolving in art — the journey of the dodo
The dodo went extinct in less than 100 years of its discovery, and today is a symbol of extinction by human activity. Owing to its location, very few individual birds were sighted by humans in the 1600s, and most of what we know about the bird comes from description and art. ThePrint’s Sandhya Ramesh explains new findings that track the changes in the depiction of dodo in art and scientific drawings.

I have been following the print for the past 2 years. These journalists are highly skilled.
Good content, bad presentation
I have been following The Print for about 2 years now and I find the news channel itself very informative. I was eagerly awaiting the podcast version because that is my preferred media source. However, the podcast is very disappointing. The sound quality is so poor, as is the diction of the reporters. I can hear construction noise in the background of recordings and many podcasts are just someone reading an article. They need to do much better if launching a podcast is really a priority for the team. For now it seems like a very half hearted effort.
Audio Quality is dropping but content is good
Have been a listener for many years as I like the content and the coverage of current affairs. How ever of late they have hired a bunch of folks to simply read out written articles. In spite receiving negative feedback about the elocution skills of some of these folks they continue to proceed with the same. That leaves a bad taste when folks cannot understand the difference between decade and decayed , pronounce rural as rulal, do not know how to pronounce Biden, Barack Obama , grievance etc. Much to my surprise one pronounced even the stage name of Assam incorrectly. Needless to say they have lowered the bar on hiring and probably do not even bother to hear their own podcasts once they are recorded . If you cannot verbalize accept and except correctly then you shouldn’t be in a verbal profession in my opinion. I am not complaining about accent but just about bad pronounciation as Mr Shekhar Gupta has tried to use accent as defense. Sad to see him not owning up as he frequently exhorts others to own up to mistakes and make improvements.
